    I did not "assume" anything...This mare has many conformational faults that aren't worthy of reproducing. That's MY opinion. Plus breeding a majorly halter bred horse...as stated by the OP...to a cowhorse/reining horse, Isnt going to be a good cross in my research. There are always exceptions, but its just not something you see happening. Its not a desired cross. They are two totally different genres.

    You breed the best, to the best, and hope for the best. I'm not attacking anyone, I'm just surprised that a horse with navicular issues, as stated by the OP, in a 2006 HALTER bred mare, Isnt exactly the smartest choice. But you are correct...I only have the information the OP posted, which in minimal.

    Breeding is a hot topic, and you click a box that informs you of ALL opinions you may get. Good and Bad.

    And the mare I bred has good conformation, personality and the show record the back up a breeding. So Id say yes, I DO have room to talk. Hip, chest, back, straight legs, neck, her biggest flaw is her big nose. I can live with that.

    You are entitled to your own opinion, and I am TOTALLY fine with that. No hard feelings here I just think your statement about her having absolutely no reproductive quality at all is a little silly.

    I could easily point out multiple flaws with your mare. She's cute, but not perfect :) And if we're going off breeding the "best" to the "best" then she wouldn't qualify. Neither would my mare. But we love them, and we enjoy their amazing personalities and the adorable babies they produce for us.



    She is not a bad looking mare, I can live with her flaws


    (Her dam is a full bred AQHA mare that has a cowy background, she's not JUST halter bred.)

    I never said she was "bad" looking.

    No horse is perfect. We can all agree to that.

    And the next mare I breed is not perfect, neither is the stallion I have chosen, but its a darn good, desirable, pedigree packed full of amazing QH racers cross. I can surely live with that. HeHeHe.

    I don't see why you couldn't have said something sensible like this when you first posted here instead of the ridiculous response that you had. Actually explaining the reasoning behind your opinion is much more constructive.

    Personally, I am not at all a fan of your mare's conformation. Of course that's just an opinion- as it is when you say she has good confo.
    She doesn't scream breeding worthy to me, but then again I'm not emotionally attached to her and we all know about the rose colored glasses we have as horse owners.

    Never mind that though- as it's way off topic for this thread.
